About the Author

John Edward Scott has been using Oracle since version 7 (around 1993), and has used pretty much every release since then. He has had the good fortune to work on a wide range of projects for a varied group of clients. He was lucky enough to start working with Oracle Application Express when it was first publicly released, and has worked with it nearly every day since (and loves it). John is an Oracle ACE Director and was named Application Express Developer of the Year in 2006 by Oracle Magazine. He is also the cofounder of ApexEvangelists (Apex-Evangelists.com), a company that specializes in providing training, development, and consulting specifically for the Oracle Application Express product. You can contact John at john.scott@apex-evangelists.com.

Scott Spendolini is president & co-founder of Sumneva , a world-class Oracle Application Express (APEX) consulting, training, and solutions firm founded in 2010. He has assisted a number of clients from various verticals with their Oracle APEX development and training needs. Spendolini has presented at a number of Oracle-related conferences, including Oracle OpenWorld, ODTUG, and IOUG, and is a regular contributor to the Oracle APEX Forums on OTN. Spendolini is also the host & conference chair of APEXposed, an APEX-specific annual conference. He is a recent recipient of the Oracle Ace Director designation and is also a co-author of the book Pro Oracle Application Express. In 2009, Spendolini, along with ODTUG, was presented with the Oracle Innovation Award for his work on ODTUG s public web site, ODTUG.com. Spendolini is also an Oracle Certified Oracle Application Express developer.

Prior to co-founding Sumneva, Spendolini founded and ran Sumner Technologies from 2005 through 2009, which also focused on Oracle APEX consulting, training, and solutions. Before that, he was employed by Oracle Corporation for almost 10 years, the last three of which he was a senior product manager for Oracle APEX. He holds a dual bachelor's degree from Syracuse University in management information systems and telecommunications management, and resides in Ashburn, Virginia with his wife and two children.

Oracle's Application Express (aka ApEx, formerly HTMLDB) is an amazing foundation for developing database-driven web applications. It is easy for a novice, yet very flexible for a software developer. Unfortunately, there have not been any good references published until now. Scott and Spendolini have created a wonderful reference and tutorial that surpasses anything else out there.

The chapters on Ajax and JavaScript and the APEX Dictionary were extremely helpful to me as a developer.

I was disappointed that there was no section on validation.

Overall, it was excellent, and if I could give 4.5 stars, I would.

I'm now making my second pass through this book in more detail but I have found this book to meet my needs perfectly by providing a very comprehensive overview of what can be done with APEX. If you are thinking about developing a product with APEX or adding an APEX component to your current architecture then this is a great place to start. More details are provided as you get further and further into the design and development process.

I was disappointed to find that the sample code was not made available unless I purchase the sister e-book for $10.

Being quite new to APEX and PL/SQL, I was anxious to find a book that would actually provide me with useful methods for implementing improvements to my APEX application. This book does that. After reading the chapters on Authentication and Authorization, I was able to implement my own authentication and authorization schemes in my app. This book is great for those developers who are not yet experts in APEX and who may not yet feel totally comfortable with all of its capabilities.

I am not a very experienced APEX Developer, and I found the book did not assist in me progressing to a guru on the subject, there are other books better served for that purpose.
However, if you are releasing commercial apex applications then this book contains a lot of material that you really should review and understand to get the expert's perspective from their experience on what is really required in your application.
So whilst it is not definitive, I still recommend it and I am sure that I will be referring to it actively over the next 2 years.

I am an intermediate user of Apex but always wanted to do something more impressive in my reports and layouts. I also never liked the way I handled the LDAP. This book made the LDAP authenication a lot clearer to do and also has some great tips on reports that jump out at you. I also didn't use a lot of the HTML features just because I didn't know how but this book also brought a lot to light in that area. This book is a good buy for someone with a basic knowledge of APEX looking for some of those answers they just never get to in the classes.
